U.S. Military May Consider You a Potential Terrorist If You Are Young, Use Social Media, Or Question “Mainstream Ideologies”

Warning Signs …

Wired reports today:

These are some warning signs that that you have turned into a terrorist who will soon kill your co-workers, according to the U.S. military. You’ve recently changed your “choices in entertainment.” You have “peculiar discussions.” You “complain about bias,” you’re “socially withdrawn” and you’re frustrated with “mainstream ideologies.” Your “Risk Factors for Radicalization” include “Social Networks” and “Youth.”

***

That was the assessment of a terrorism advisory organization inside the U.S. Army called the Asymmetric Warfare Group in 2011, acquired by Danger Room.

And the government has more or less classified journalists as terrorists.

So it’s time for an updated list of actions and beliefs which government officials have said may indicate “potential terrorism” …

The following actions may get an American citizen living on U.S. soil labeled as a “suspected terrorist” today:

Holding the following beliefs may also be considered grounds for suspected terrorism:

Postscript:  Given that the U.S. government is directly supporting Al Qaeda and Iranian terrorists – and the fact that the government has removed some of these groups from the list of terrorist organizations for political reasons – a reader satirically jokes that only those U.S. citizens who join one of the actual terrorist groups which the U.S. now supports will avoid being labeled terrorists.

    O.k. so as long as we worship the evil doers and stupidly question nothing, forget history, then we are cool?

    • bachy

      Precisely. Now, isn’t there some reality TV show or tabloid news site you should be looking at? The fact you’re reading & commenting on this blog doesn’t bode well. You might be influenced to think critically or independently about something.

    “Mainstream ideologies”: here we go again with that “OFFICIAL STORY”/”CONSPIRACY THEORY” psyop by the elites. OFFICIAL STORY = story told by officials to protect officials (government & media), facts have nothing to do with “official story”. If you don’t believe the “official story”, or the OFFICIAL’S story, you’re a “conspiracy theorist”.

  • Blair T. Longley

    … our government is inherently corrupt and is in need of great change …

    Obviously TRUE, but that needs to seriously REAL! A great deal (of government) is lies and self serving propaganda!
    At some point we should stop believing there is anything else, instead,
    we should overtly and permanently regard government as organized lies,
    backed by force.

    I may fall back on George Washington quote:

    “Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”

    THAT IS WHAT AMERICANS NEED TO REMEMBER, AND FACE AS FUNDAMENTAL FACT! If you think about that social fact deeply enough, it becomes plainly obvious that the government is ALWAYS necessarily the best organized terrorist. We should turn that into a more modernized scientific formulation of that basic insight into perpetual political reality!
    Of course, although I have been trying to do that for several decades,
    the ONLY thing I have proven is the horrible exception to Abraham
    Lincoln observations that:

    “You can fool all the people some of the
    time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the
    people all the time.”

    The problem is that the established systems are set up so that they ONLY HAVE TO FOOL ENOUGH OF THE PEOPLE ENOUGH OF THE TIME!

    The ONLY way to fix the problems require that there
    are no longer enough people being fooled enough of the time …

    What SHOULD happen is the same as Jefferson said:

    “I know
    of no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the
    people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to
    exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not
    to take it from them but to inform their discretion.”

    However, there has been a war on consciousness,
    intended to accomplish exactly the opposite, and that war has been way
    too successful, so far! The REAL history of the American republic has
    been a horrible slide down, as the ability of organized crime to corrupt
    the government became more and more triumphant. Clearly,
    what has actually happened is that enough people were fooled enough of
    the time, to enable the fire of government to burn out of control, and
    thus, the inherent nature of government, as stated by Washington above,
    has transformed the government of the USA into the worst wild fire of
    organized terrorism in the whole world, which is seriously threatening
    to burn up the majority of American too!

    WE need to enlighten enough
    Americans so that there are no longer enough to fool enough of the time!
    However, that is an information civil war, against the war on
    consciousness, which has been waged non-stop by The Powers That Be, and
    has become way, way too successful …

    THERE NEEDS TO BE A SECOND AMERICAN
    REVOLUTION. HOWEVER, THAT CAN NOT BE BASED ON THE BIGGEST BULLIES’
    BULLSHIT ABOUT WHAT “GOVERNMENT” IS …

    IT SHOULD BE BASED ON THE TRUTH THAT WASHINGTON ANNOUNCIATED:

    IN FACT, THE GOVERNMENT IS THE WORST TERRORIST,
    AND ONLY WHEN RESTRAINED BY ENOUGH OF PEOPLE BEING ENLIGHTENED CAN THAT
    BE A USEFUL FIRE, RATHER THAN AN OUT-OF-CONTROL DESTRUCTIVE FIRE.

    Right now, the government of the USA is an out-of-control terrorist force,
    burning up the planet and its own home! That keeps happening because
    the people controlling that government continue to be able to fool
    enough of the people enough of the time!

    • bachy

      So, are you saying that you do believe that it’s actually possible (let alone likely) for a sizable enough portion of society to remain sufficiently enlightened, in perpetuity, to thus make the monopolist state a “useful” institution?
      I say if so, then count yourself as among the fooled.

      • bariola

        I often wonder what the percentages are of people who are, more or less, awakened to the reality of the NWO, people who are reasonably intelligent but still deceived and caught up in the “matrix” (the types that watch the msm and think they understand what’s going in the world) and the number of people who are pretty much brain dead, haven’t a clue about the Bill of Rights or anything going on in the world and are content to play video games, watch NFL or MLB and watch TV shows like “Amish Mafia” (and believe that it’s real!!!!). What are the percentages I wonder?

        I think about this because I wonder if resistance really is futile at this point? Most of the people I know think I’ve gone loony tunes and are unable to comprehend and/or are unwilling to look into the issues that I raise re: the NWO, the expanding police-state/surveillance grid, Agenda 21, the “Fed,” chemtrails, GMO’s, etc., etc. Should I continue to try to wake people up, or should I just focus on playing guitar, hanging out with friends and just living out the remainder of my days as stress-free as possible?

        My best friend is of the latter persuasion. He thinks that the NWO won a long time ago and the only things we can do at this point are have fun while we have the chance (and maybe prep, although he hasn’t prepped all that much) before the whole thing goes haywire. I have chronic health problems so I just try to take it one day at a time and try not to stress about it all too much, but I still, on occasion, post stuff on the web. It’s an uphill battle though, as these bastards propagandize us 24/7.

        • bachy

          .I really don’t know, man. Personally, I don’t have much hope at all for humanity – let alone the U.S.A. – breaking out of the mode of statist servility before either wiping ourselves off the earth or Mother Nature finally doing the deed for us, whichever comes first.
          I’m not just waving the white flag, though. I still go online & raise hell (hopefully raise someone’s awareness while I’m at it), while I’m still able, since the internet hasn’t been hemmed up by the Powers That Be yet. My only advice for you is try not to put the burden of saving the world from NWO serfdom all on your own shoulders. From my experience, the more one takes the onus of “waking others up” onto themselves, the more their efforts tend to have the opposite effect. Just an observation. While there’s not much to be gained from preaching to the choir, keep in mind that most of those outside our little choir are in that position because (a) they’ve already proven adverse to drawing correct conclusions; or (b) they just can’t be bothered to do enough thinking to even know there are conclusions to be drawn in the first place. Either way, you’re starting off behind the 8-ball, & most of the time it’s not even worth your effort. Don’t get so caught up in the uphill struggle that you forget how to smile, laugh & have fun in your life, or at least take time to appreciate the ones you love, who make the whole battle worth fighting to begin with.

          • bariola

            Good answer. Thanx man! Yeah, I still raise hell online, but there’s gotta be a balance. We can never give up though, as you said. Like Yogi Berra said, “It ain’t over till it’s over.”

  • jingle bells

    I wish everyone would just shut the fuck up about terrorism already. It’s all a scam. It’s made up. there’s no such god damn thing. go bACK TO BED.

  • LordOrlock

    The thing is though, doesnt the entire right wing complain, limp wristedly, of a ‘liberal media’ bias? I fail to see how complaining about bias is extremist when most of the country does it these days. Or at least about half.

    Seriously can we move on to something else then re-ashed news that dates back to early 2000. I clearly remember reading the 4th Reich’s social doctrine coming from the new and improved Department of Homeland Security release to the public documents. I also clearly remember blogging about this and generally getting looked upon as a nut case. Why does the ignorant mass, cause they are ignorant, always shoot down the messenger?… Oh yea it’s because they are ignorant

    So both *using* social media and *not having* a facebook account are warning signs? It’s official – it’s completely arbitrary and they’re making up whatever they feel like.

  • ForestSilverwood

    These are reasons for police and politicians to never use the T word. It’s a blanket “you’re wrong” statement.

    Please read the ‘START’ document. First paragraph below.

    (July 5, 2012) — Current articles and postings on the Internet have mischaracterized the conclusions of the START report “Hot Spots of Terrorism and Other Crimes in the United States, 1970 to 2008,” which was released in January. To be clear, the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) does not classify individuals as terrorists or extremists based on ideological perspectives. START and the Global Terrorism Database, on which the Report is based, defines terrorism and terrorist attacks as “the threatened or actual use of illegal force and violence by a non-state actor to attain a political, economic, religious, or social goal through fear, coercion, or intimidation.”
    The key is, ‘use of or threat to use illegal force’.
    Don’t be fooled into thinking that the military or Homeland Security will knee-jerk into action against anyone who is for example a ‘Christian’. The idea that a professional in any branch of the military or DHS would act like that is purely rediculous.

    • bachy

      What is purely ridiculous is the idea that everyone who is in the employ of the military & DHS is, by virtue of that fact, necessarily immune to the same human impulses toward corruption & otherwise unscrupulous behavior that inflict the rest of mankind, & are thus beyond suspicion or even a basic regard for the sanctity of civil liberty.
      Look; the greater the potential for arbitrary & punitive infringements of individual rights, the less justified is the presumption of benevolence among those who wield that power.

    • bariola

      Well, the TSA treats everyone at our airports like terrorists. They irradiate and/or do invasive full body searches on innocent Americans and foreigners (who also have inalienable rights per our Constitution), the old and infirm, diplomats (like Indian Ambassador Meera Shankar in 2010 who was so traumatized by an invasive full body search that she vowed never to return here), Miss USA 2003 (in 2011, who burst into tears after being felt up by a TSA goon), certain Congressmen and women (the few honest ones left), even on toddlers and infants for phck sake, in violation of the 4rth Amendment and all that is holy.

      Please don’t tell me about how we need the TSA to protect us from terrorists. WE are arming Al CIA Duh in Syria as we speak, as we did in Libya a few years ago, Macedonia in early 2001, the Balkans in the 90’s and Afghanistan in the 80’s. This country is run by an international mafia that profits from death and destruction, i.e., the military/industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell address. This international mafia/corporatocracy is often referred to as “The New World Order,” (their term, not mine).

    I seem to fit a large majority of categories in both part1 and part2. I will gladly sit on anyone’s “terrorist” list, if it means speaking my mind and stading up for my rights as a U.S. citizen.

  • Keith

    It seems that the definition of terrorism is made up as they go. Or perhaps, we are really becoming a Police state

    • bariola

      According to the previous episode of “America’s Book of Secrets” on H2, we ARE in a police-state and it will only get worse. In essence, tptb told everyone watching that (to be read in a Brooklynese/mafiosa accent),”Yeah, dah police-state is here and it’s gonna keep gettin’ worse. Wadda ya gonna do about it, huh?

    Military, government employees and all institutions who follow the above guidelines are terrorists and traitors to the U.S. Constitution and to the most basic principles of freedom and democracy. Anyone who complies is also aiding and abetting treason.

    In other words… If they want to label you as a ‘terrorist,’ that’s what they are going to do.
    Good to know.

    ….soooo, basically, everyone is a terrorist…

  • kiljoy616

    Everyone posting here is a Terrorist so be warned, we are watching you. /Sarcasm

    Rolling my eyes at the Christian one, considering the government is full of christians maybe it should be more specific and say which version of christianity. There are so many to pick from.
